The HP Designjet Z6600 goes even wider than other models in its lineup, as a wide-format inkjet printer that supports media up to 60 inches wide. It can churn out projects quickly, with a top speed of 1500 square feet per hour, though its high-quality mode is much slower. Buyers should be prepared spend a lot on HP Z6600 printer ink, however, as prices are quite high.
The Z6600 is not only well-suited for full-color prints such as posters and banners, but three shades of black Designjet Z6600 printer ink are used to make black-and-white prints really stand out. The maximum optimized resolution is 2400x1200 dpi, and lower settings are available when users want to prioritize output speed or save on inkjet supplies.
Of course, the standout feature is the Z6600's ability to handle media up to 60 inches wide, and it can handle rolls up to 6.7 inches in diameter, so reloads will be few and far between. This obviously requires a lot of bulk, as the machine measures 53.9x95.7x27.2 inches, and weighs a very hefty 419 pounds. As a result, it is recommended for production environments used to dealing with such large equipment.
If the price tag of the machine isn't enough for buyers to take it seriously, the cost of HP Z6600 ink cartridges is also high. With six Designjet Z6600 ink cartridges to replace, it will also require careful attention, though supplies can be replaced on-the-fly. Finding third-party HP Z6600 ink may be difficult as well, so buyers should allocate a significant budget for operation.
With such a wide variety of media support, there is little the HP Z6600 can't do when it comes to large format printing, whether in color or black-and-white. Its quick speeds and sharp output resolution make it a formidable machine, but the price tag and high cost of supplies should give some buyers pause.
